About the Cover Illustration: Who can be sure what dance this is? With Merton, call it a "dance in the waters of life." It is ecstatic and fiercely, joyously incarnate. "We are invited to forget ourselves on purpose, cast our awful solemnity to the winds and join in the general dance." He knew so many of the steps.
Roger Lipsey, author of "Angelic Mistakes: The Art of Thomas Merton"
